5. Wash the dog.

Wash the dog depends on the characteristics of the breed, type of coat and the individual characteristics of each dog. Dogs with undercoat wash frequently.

It is necessary to consider if you plan to participate in a dog show.
Grooming your pet is fairly simple, but quite another thing - show dog.
Festive attire, wealth wool, its length, fine silky hair pouring severity direct demand from the owner of a lot of effort and patience.
    From the hands of an experienced breeder you got a puppy, already accustomed to the daily combing wool.
    Keep doing this, showing particularly sensitive in handling mustache, beard and feet. Take care that during the game, your hilarious and fun kid does not hurt his hair, mustache and beard especially (because of their difficult and time to grow).
    Do not let him rub the muzzle of furniture, carpets, rolling on the floor, and so on. N. The classes if the puppy is not accustomed to Trimming table is better to start in her lap, and then transfer all treatments for hair on the table.
    Leave an adult dog, and even more about puppy-stand on the table can not be categorically. Famous, handsome, Multichampion, World Champion Hooligan de Pengibyur killed in a fall from the table.
    Teach your dog to the fact that it should stand still strapped to the bracket on the leash. You have in this case remain free both hands, which is essential when working.
    As soon as the puppy grows hair, begin to use curlers to help her maintain and grow. For manufac papilotok use of tissue paper of high quality.
    First curler is placed on the head in the center of the forehead and fix a small elastic band, which in any case should not pull or pull the hair and skin. Otherwise, the animal starts to rub about everything and try to disrupt the curlers. Alas ... very often with scraps of wool.
    By the age of 9-10 months can begin to wrap hair on the body. Papilotok length must match the length coat. The average size is approximately equal to a folded typewritten sheet.
    Typically, mustache and beard are beginning to wind with 10-11 months of age or later. Be careful when collecting wool mustache and grab the hair from the lower jaw, otherwise the dog will not be able to open your mouth and normally is.
    If mustache still short, do not rush to collect them in curlers, since you probably spoil wool. Please be patient.
    When the tail cheat follow in order to collect the wool did not close the anus and in any case gum should not drag myself tail, only wool. Then you start to wind the hair on the hips, waist, back, etc. Curlers on the dog's body are arranged symmetrically on the proposed scheme....
Shampoos for exhibition Yorkie should be particularly high quality and special for dogs with long silky hair. On ordinary days, enough to double wash the dog with a moisturizing shampoo plus wool processing special moisturizing conditioner or balm-conditioner. Well washed wool "crunches" under the fingers. But remember, wool York is not very strong, it should be easily and gently wet the two terry towels. Then, in order to avoid entanglement wool disassemble it into strands, comb rare comb and make the parting. Now it is possible to dry. Strongly avoid using too much hot air, which breaks down the hair, and too strong jet that it sputyvet. For all manipulations with hair brush professional use. Drying hair begins with paws, then gradually climb up to the middle of the back. Other groomer advised to dry hair in the direction of York parting down, carefully combing brush the entire length of the hair, pulling it beautifully.
When the dog is completely dry, you do again parted, but now very carefully and beautifully so that the hair flows down evenly on both sides of the torso. It is better to use the comb, one end of which is a brief view of a knitting needle. Now shiny silky hair falls slightly lying on the table surface.
  Ton-notes on the head collected by tiny elastic rezinochek. You can do different hairstyles, but not pulling tight wool - and do not tighten it back. On the contrary, emphasize stop hair bow and pin. Practice with hairstyles in advance, rather than on the day of the show.

The young dog one side of the board may be shorter than the other, as on this side of the dog prefers to sleep. When otrastet dress, make sure that its length does not interfere with the movement of the dog in the ring, especially on grass. Accordingly, shorten it. Better to do it with the assistant.
  One person sees to it that the dog was standing in front of the exhibition on the stand, and the other equates wool, but she went down to the edge of the stand. Then the ring coat nice and exactly lie on the sides of the torso. Wool alignment start from the front part of the body towards the rear, first one side and then the other.
After that, turn the dog to his tail, look at it from a distance and trim the hair on the back. Proceed with leveling coat front. After the wool lined around the perimeter of the dress, go to the beard and mustache, following the same principle of symmetry. After that, proceed to the processing of wool on the feet.
Lift the hair growing on the forearm (metatarsal) and trim the hair on the leg, giving it a round, cat form. Then lower the hair from legs and trim the way that all lines were smooth and clean. Wool York is growing constantly, so it needs to be trimmed regularly. Of course, equivalent to her for a few days before the show, including the hair on the paws and ears. All manipulations were carried out on a clean, dried hair.
More dangerous are not only too strapped gum, but it can be fleas that cause the dog to bite and scratch themselves, leading wool in improper condition, as well as eczema, the main reasons which may be incorrect feeding, bathing, choice of shampoos and oils, anal blockage and other glands.

Remember !!! All luxury silk dress that demonstrate the best representatives of the breed, not only due to genetically inherited, but a titanic work of their respective owners. It is necessary at least for a short time to neglect the rules of care and all your work will come to nothing.
                                                                                      Scheme winding papilotok

Regularly - the frequency depends on the type and quality of your hair York, remove all curlers and carefully combed the entire coat. Quite difficult to grow a beard and mustache, so here curlers have to change more often, almost every day.
    If you stay with the replacement papilotok, then formed balls, mats of hair cut short, and the dress will be hopelessly flawed. After hair curlers in the completely packed, a dog wearing light overalls, which in turn protects it from damage. Its shape and size should not hamper movement and allow the animal to freely jump, play and run; Clasp have to be on his chest.
     After each winding watch a few minutes the dog. However, there is cunning, that will never rub and remove curlers with you, but happy all this is done on the sly. Be vigilant.
    Yorkies have amazing character: most of them are willing to accept brushing, haircuts, wearing papilotok, overalls, etc., as an exciting game. However, to teach a dog to all this it is necessary to gradually fun and gently talking to her constantly endorsing and encouraging tidbits.
    Landscaped York delicious - let them know it's your dog. Yorkshire Terriers unusually susceptible to praise.
Screw curlers on a well-dried and washed wool hairdryer. Before winding wool carefully treated with one of the special oils: olive, almond, mink and others. We would not recommend oil for children, as many dogs it provokes the appearance of abundant dandruff.
    The oil can be applied from a spray or a very soft brush made of natural hair and then comb the well so that it is uniformly distributed over the hair. It's hard not to impregnate wool, it is better to apply it more often than too liberally oiled, says Osman Shemaiah. Too rare swimming leads to a loss of wool.
       Long before the show at the exhibition, ranging from 5 months of age, Yorkshire Terrier is necessary to select the most suitable for his oils and shampoos. There can be no definitive advice, and each owner must itself determine the best option for each of their dogs. Employment wool should not be any agony for the owner nor dogs. Caring for wool York, encourage it, talk about what it was beautiful, intelligent, delightful, well, very, very ... york in the world! Experienced dog owners themselves rushing to jump on your desktop waiting for lots of fun. Do not forget to wear socks hind legs, as if scratching the dog will tear hair claws.
    Exhibition York usually washed every week. Soap when bathing your dog should be very gently in one direction, not to be confused and do not tear the hair.
